There are State and Federal laws that protect individuals against unlawful discrimination.
Unlawful discrimination occurs when a person is treated unfairly based upon their age, gender, disability, marital status, pregnancy, race or religion.
Sexual harassment and bullying are also unlawful and subject to legal remedy.
Discrimination is prohibited in the course of employment, education, provision of goods and services, accommodation, clubs and associations and advertising.
If you are subject to unlawful discrimination, you can lodge a complaint with the Equal Opportunity Commission (South Australia) or the Human Rights Commission (Commonwealth) depending upon the particular circumstances of your case.
If discrimination occurs in the workplace, a discrimination claim can be lodged in addition to a workers compensation claim.
There are strict time limits associated with making a discrimination complaint. Rossi Legal can provide advice and assistance to you in relation to your particular circumstances, the appropriate forum for the complaint and in lodging the complaint as well as representing you throughout the complaints process.
